If you suddenly find your Sim in an outstanding mood you need to make sure you take advantage of it to gain extra Skill points or raise Confidence levels. This is important because not only will this continuously boost their mood but also make it easier when leveling up in other game areas.

Build Mode

Make sure when you are planning your house you especially focus on their functionality instead of their visual design. If you are building a big house you should plan it so your kitchen, bathroom and bedroom are close together so you don't waste a lot of time walking between these main rooms. Design rooms for functionality first, aesthetics later.

Don't Use Auto-Placement

Avoid using the auto-placement feature which allows the artificial intelligence of the software to place things for you such as windows. This is because a well-placed window can drastically improve a room's light which can substantially add to the overall mood of your Sims.
